I have the most wonderful memories of being part of early CS and made absolutely wonderful and life long friends from this crafty enterprise! I still laugh about being part of one of the earliest retreats and no one knowing quite who I was, ending up with just about an "all-nighter" of demonstrating inky techniques galore...you know who you are that were there!
In looking through what digital files I could get my hands on, I just sat and smiled going through many pics...here's a few!
After 8 great years at Ranger, what could be crazier than inky overload in day to day work? Why not "crafting-in-all-categories" overload as Director of Education at A.C. Moore Arts & Crafts? Yeah, that'll do it. I've just celebrated my 4th anniversary with this East Coast retailer of 141 stores, with everything "content"...Make & Takes, Demonstrations, Crafty Events as well as Social Media (Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest for starters) as well as being the Media Representative on tv segments. Now my brain is in definite overdrive, but my love of papercrafting still resonates in the majority of projects I create for myself, friends and work.
I thought I'd share some of what I've been making to provide some inspiration...the bottom line is that every technique you learn from Club Scrap or anywhere else (especially from your own experimenting), can always translate into something other than a card or scrapbook page; not that anything is wrong with that, but it's nice to sit in your home and to be able to readily see something that you've created become a piece of home decor for everyone to enjoy that YOU made!
Here's some recent cards and true "papercrafting" projects created; most all instructions can be found here. As for the "crafting with paper" projects, some are not on the internet yet, but you can check back...just think how awesome some of these projects can be with CS paper?
The bottom line is...have fun, don't be afraid to experiment in ideas you have (you might be surprised as to what you can do!) and take the time to make stuff!!!
Wishing you all the most fun in your papercrafting adventures! Robin
